Re: Listening
It is interesting to watch how privacy issues can really get customers riled up. I've never used Evernote and it products but wonder how I'd feel even with the original plan to have a "limited number of Evernote employees to review anonymized user data." Maybe the use of anonymized data in particular would not have bothered me if I got an improved product?

Re: correction
The whole concept of digital privacy is fast becoming an oxymoron. Developers of neural networks will need to use all those bottomless reservoirs of data to create the thinking machines that will run things by the time we get to 2040. Right now, we think of privacy in personal terms. Big data is less about individuals than it is about profiling human behavior. It's not a clear and untangled distinction.

Re: correction
I can't imagine the kind of damage that has already happened from the oversight on the finance systems and personal data storage areas but at least the company is doing something about it. I've a feeling that all the people affected are going to be complaining that it's only about time that action is taken though!

Re: correction
I can understand why people would be concerned. Evernote hasn't exactly performed well the past few years, so the company seems to want to mine some data. Users shouldn't have to accept that, and it's clear they don't. Good call for Evernote to roll this back.

Watching the PR nightmare unfold was very interesting. It was good of Evernote to scrap the unpopular policy early on. I read about it and waited to see what they would do before I left the service for good. I was really surprised they made the choices they did for the new privacy policy.

So this wasn't about a poorly worded communication after all.
